Here on Earth we live on a planet that is in orbit around the Sun. The Sun itself is a star that is on fire and will someday burn up, leaving our solar system uninhabitable. Therefore we must build a bridge to the stars, because as far as we know, we are the only sentient creatures in the entire universe. When do we start building that bridge to the stars? We begin as soon as we are able, and this is that time. We must not fail in this obligation we have to keep alive the only meaningful life we know of. —
Wernher von Braun, pioneering rocket scientist and architect of America’s pioneering manned space program, as recalled by Tom Wolfe.
This passage opens the book Five Billion Years of Solitude, a reminder that life on Earth has an expiration date, but the duration our existence is in our own hands … nay, our brains, certainly here on Earth, and perhaps beyond.
So this happened last night while building an ikea drawer by myself…then @j6shih saved the day by helping me :)

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, BBC Future has created an interactive map of his travels through time. Can you guess which Doctor has made the most TARDIS trips? Click here to find out, and click on each trip to see archive video clips and images too.
This interactive image was produced by Information is Beautiful for BBC Future.
Oh please do click through to the BBC Future site. The interactive map is really something.
The time-travel spaghetti artists at Information is Beautiful previously put together this mega-map of time travel in pop culture, featuring several entertaining “ultra-paradoxes” (Marty McFly meets Star Trek crew and battles Terminator, anyone?)
But perhaps nothing will approach the epic time travel/pop culture intersection that is Temporal Anomalies in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, forever one of my favorite links on the internet. Prepare to have you brain blown outcha head. If you wanna save Buckbeak, you’re gonna need a wormhole.
